1.0 out of 5 stars ? :(, August 29, 2004
This review is from: Teach Yourself Electricity and Electronics (Paperback)
This book is great for you if you're an EXTREMLY slow learner, or a smart retard. I don't know pooh about electronics far beyond advanced high school physics and electron behavior. I acquired this book with high hopes. As I began to read I could tell that the writer knew what he was talking about and delivered this in a clear fashion. Suddenly he begins to talk about people going thru corridors and all kinds of analogies that seemed so redundant after a full explanation, these analogies were directed in a way that it was an insult to the reader. I felt appalled of what may be yet to come. I thought "It may be directed to someone that's still in preschool and is advancing into manhood. So I skipped 200 pages or more, to my surprise the same kind of analogies haunted me as I read. Being the only electronics book I've got, I kept on reading.... After about half an hour, I felt like burning this book of the devil, but burning a book is a sin, no, not a book like this, a book that has been passed down by Beelzebub himself has no place in this world. If you like to feel like Mr. Smarty Pants reading baby books, you might like this devil scroll taquito of a book. As a kid I would have love to have the plastic toy with the little hammer and the blocks shaped like chips that only fall in the correct slot. The toy probably got lost by the shipping company, or budget cuts or something.... If you want a decent book get Principles of Electric Circuits it costs like100 bucks, but a secondary merchant is selling new ones for $15. I myself think this is the worst book eve bought. But if you still want it, email me and I'll send you my copy given you pay for shipping... Now I know how such a big book can be so so cheap.
